I started using Squeak a few months ago, mostly in a time permitting  
fashion.. 2-3 weeks ago, I saw a Pharo related message come across   
that list and joined here to see what Pharo is. I'm still not entirely  
sure, so I'm asking...

Pharo is... ?

The little bit of marketing on the website makes it sound appealing  
and I'm sure if I had more experience with Squeak then downloading the  
one click and running it and poking around would have answered a ton  
of questions but, I don't have the Squeak background to have that be  

Is there a document somewhere that says what Pharo is meant to be.  
What initial concrete changes from Squeak where done/are going to be  
I really need something as a jumping off point...

Thanks for any pointers,
